HONORS AND AWARDS
All of the permanent professionaJ staff, and Buy Pyridium Online many of the senior non-tenured staff serve
on Editorial Boards of scientific journals ^nd/or frequently review manuscripts for journals.
Such activities reflect the high standing of LPD scientists by professional peers. Pyridium Mg Also many
of the staff serve on Ad Hoc Committees for a granting agencies or foundations, and are
invited to participate in workshops and scientific meetings. Such activities are generally not
cited here individually unless felt to deserve special mention.
Dr. Sher was perhaps the most active of LPD staff on the national and international
lecture circuit, giving invited talks or name lectures at the N.Y. Blood Center, at Dartmouth
and the University of Texas at San Antonio, and the B. McGhee Lecture for the Am. Soc. of
Parasitologists. He was one of the organizers of the First Buy Pyridium African Congress of Immunology
held in Nairobi, and serves on the Burroughs- Wellcome Fellowship Committee. Drs. Cheever
and Sher were invited speakers at the Int'l Congress of Schisto in Brazil. Dr. Nutman was a
Wellcome Visiting Scientist at Imperial College in England, and also served on an Ad Hoc
committee for WHOADR. Dr. Neva spoke to FDA Pyridium Cost and the Blood Banking Assoc, on dangers
of transmission of parasites by transfusion.

Tangled cytokine trail in experimental Schistosomiasis. The down-regulation produced by
IL-10 inyolyes interaction with other cytokines. Last year it was concluded that the cytokine
IL-10 was responsible for suppressing INF-gamma actiyation of macrophages in killing
schistosomulae. The actual mechanism was shown to be inhibition of production of toxic
nitric oxide (NO) metabolites. But IL-10 was also found to block production of another
cytokine, TNF-alpha. In addition, the cytokines TNF-beta and IL-4 were found to act with
IL-10 in inhibiting actiyated macrophages yia a pathway independent of TNF-alpha (Oswald,
James Pyridium Canada and Wynn). So, the mechanism of IL-10 immunosuppression is more complex than
New Phenazopyridine Hydrochloride Pyridium method of semi-quantitatiye PCR to assay transcription of cytokines. By extraction of
MRNA from tissue specimens, reyerse-transcribing it, and performing PCR using primers
specific for Pyridium In Canada various cytokines, it is f>ossible to detect presence and estimate relative amounts
of cytokines expressed in the specimen. This technique was applied to schistosome egg
granulomas in mouse lungs. Results with this approach, plus the use of anti-cytokine
monoclonal antibodies, suggest that IL-4 and other Th2 cytokines may be the most critical for
granuloma formation (Wynn and Eltoum). TTiis technique should be esp>ecially useful in
following immunologic events over time and under conditions in which cytokines are either
consumed, broken down, or otherwise difficult to assay directly.
Thl suppression produced by schistosome infection results in delayed clearance of
concomitant virus infection. Schistosome Pyridium 100 Phenazopyridine Pyridium Pyridium Discontinued infected mice later infected with a recombinant
vaccinia virus were found to have greatly delayed clearance of the virus from the liver, spleen
and lungs. Since the animals showed inhibition of cytolytic Otc Pyridium T cell responses to vaccinia,
results were attributed to a suppressed Thl response that occurs in the early stages of the
schistosome infection. Whether schistosomiasis in humans has the same effect on certain
viral infections, such as Pyridium Otc hepatitis B, can only be speculated (Actor, BuUer of LVD, NIAID
and J. Berzofsky of MEI, NCI).
Search for Schistosome vaccine continues. New candidate recombinant antigens. The
recombinant expressing paramyosin in a BCG vector was able to induce a Thl type cell-
mediated response, but gave no significant protection in vaccinated mice. Negative results
may have been due to the low level of paramyosin expressed by the vector and a slower
growth rate by the BCG construct than by wild type BCG. New recombinants have been
constructed and will soon be tested; one expressing cercarial elastase and another expressing
glutathione-S-transferase (Actor, Oswald, Molecular Vaccines, Inc. and J. McKerrow of Univ.
Use of T cell lines and clones to identify protective antigens. T cell lines and clones were
produced from niice that had been immunized with soluble whole worm antigen plus BCG.
One T cell clone (B) and one T cell line (1S2) were derived which in cell transfer
experiments confer protection. Clone B gives a Thl patter of cytokines and the 1S2 line
shows predominantly a Thl cytokine pattern. Neither the cell line or clone recognize
paramyosin. Expression clones from a CDNA library are being screened for cytokine
responses from the T cell clone to try to identify the relevant antigen(s) (Oswald, James Pyridium Uk and
Immune regulation in experimental toxoplasmosis. Identification of T. gondii antigen
responsible for T cell cytotoxicity and pathway of Class I MHC presentation. Several
approaches are being used to Pyridium Phenazopyridine identify the parasite antigen recognized by Cd8+ effector cells
that result in cytotoxicity of toxoplasma infected cells. One approach is to fractionate soluble
T. gondii antigen which Pyridium 200 Mg reacts with infected bone marrow Pyridium Tribromide macrophages and destroys them.
The other approach is to identify peptides that sensitize L cells transfected with Pyridium Plus Class I MHC
for recognition of cytotoxic lymphocytes. These results suggest a requirement for cellular
internalization in the processing of soluble antigen by bone marrow macrophages for Class I
restricted recognition (Denkers, Gazzinelli).
Down regulation of macrophage mediated killing of T. gondii and T. cruzi by cytokines.
Both IL-10 and IL-4 were found to inhibit kiUing of Pyridium Tablets intracellular toxoplasma by INF-gamma
activated macrophages in a dose-dependent fashion. The actual mechanism of parasite
destruction was by nitrogen oxides (NO). TGF-beta had even more potent down-regulatory
effects, and its action was potentiated by IL-10 and IL-4. (Gazzinelli and Morse of LIP,
NIAID). The same cytokines (IL-4, IL-10 and TGF-beta) were shown to inhibit killing of T
cruzi by INF-gamma activated macrophages (Gazzinelli and Oswald).
Role of NK cells in cytokine response to Toxoplasma. The main cytokine mediator of
resistance to Toxoplasma is considered to be INF-gamma. In order to Pyridium 200 examine the role
played by NK cells in the INF-gamma response, spleen cells from B and T lymphocyte.-
deficient mice were found to produce ENF-gamma on exposure to Toxoplasma tachyzoites.
The INF-gamma response required viable organisms, and was abolished by depletion of NK
cells, and required macrophage accessory cells. SCID mice depleted of NK cells are also less
resistant to toxo than untreated mice. Thus, NK cells clearly can be activated to produce
INF-gamma (Gazzinelli, Sher and Oswald).
Cell mediated responses in Leishmanial infection. Cytokine mRNA in bone marrow of
patients with visceral leishmaniasis. It is well-known that parasite antigen-specific anergy, as
measured by delayed hypersensitivity skin tests and lymphocyte proliferation, is a feature of
